Lunden Designs products are huge in Europe! It's true, all the fabulously adorable babies have Lunden baby blankets. This blanket was made for my little friend Kes, who lives in Amsterdam. When I generously offered to take Kes off his parents' hands, I was politely told to go get my own baby. At least I can take comfort in the fact that Kes gets to stay warm this winter cuddling in this lovely wool-blend baby blanket. As you can see, this versatile blanket is good for both playing and afternoon naps.
The pattern came from Debbie Stoller's Stitch 'N Bitch knitting book, a great guide for teaching yourself to knit. I picked a thicker yarn that yielded a much larger blanket than described in the pattern so Kes could use the blanket for years.
